About Me

My photo
Carlisle, Pennsylvania
I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge

OMG! When I got the newest stamps in from Peachy Keen I didn't know which way to turn first!! I actually was using the package they came in to help me keep from hyper ventalating in the driveway I was so excited..LOL!
Her new monster faces are flippin' adorable!! I honestly wanted to use them all.

The challenge this week Peachy Keen Stamps was a sketch challenge. When I first saw the sketch I was thinking underwater, submarine or some type of window thinga-ma-jig. But everything changed when I got my package of goodies in the mail!!

Here is the sketch for Challenge #31 this week and my take on the sketch. I replaced the circles with Monsters but all of the elements are there. I did another layout for my friends album. I made this a two page layout but didn't include the other side since it didn't go with the challenge. I thought I was using repositionable glue for the letters. I was playing around with the placement but had to walk away to tend to my girlie goo's. Well when I came back I found out the hard way that I wasn't using repositionable glue!!! Sigh...I tried to peel them off but those suckers were glued on with what felt like crazy glue so I had to leave them.

Supplies used:
Cricut Paperdoll, Storybook & Everyday paperdoll cartridges
PK-101 Medium Polka Dot Print I stamped this on the orange card stock to give it a little pattern
PK-690 Make A Monster Face Assortment for Frankenstein
PK-691 Make a Monster Face for the Ghost. The face I used is also available in PK-690 but I needed a bigger size.
PK-692 Monster Mash Face Assortment for my Alien/monster and for the Scarecrow. Just realized that my poor Scarecrow lost most of his hair so I gotta go in and give him a hair transplant.
Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch
Martha Stewart Iron Gate punch
White Gelly Roll Pen - I highly recommend getting one of these or two atleast on your next order. I can't live without mine. I use it for the eyes on my face stamps, to accent items and for my dashes. It really comes in handy and they are only $1.69.
PK-615 Halloween Candlestick Delight - which is sadly discontinued...this is really a great set!!!
